The Catalina 36/375 Association is a group of owners and enthusiasts of Catalina 36 and Catalina 375 sailboats manufactured by Catalina Yachts. The first Catalina 36 model was built in 1982. There are two "makes" of the Catalina 36, which continued in production through 1997. The Catalina 375 was manufactured from 2009 through about 2012. You can read all about the history of Catalina 36's and the Association on the History page. The Association has a commodore and a group of Officers, all of whom are volunteers, who run the organization.
This website serves as a landing place for all kinds of information related to Catalina 36 and 375 sailboats. Without becoming a member of the Association, we offer several interesting things within our Community pages including a photo gallery, classified ads, stories of cruises from members, the original model brochures, and a fleet directory.
In addition to the community pages, members have access to a wealth of technical information about the C36 and C375 sailboats. This includes the original manuals, member-contributed "how to" articles, important announcements from Catalina Yachts, boat encyclopedias, the Catalina Yachts monthly Mainsheet magazine, and much more. In addition, we have a very active Forum where members discuss technical and non-technical problems, and exchange information of all kinds. You can read more about member benefits here.
If you own a C36 or C375, or just enjoy learning about them, please consider joining the association. We think you'll find that it's money well spent!
